Marty Robbins - El Paso chords with lyrics

_ D _ _ _ Em _ _ _ B _ .
_ _ A _ _ D _ _ _ _ .
_ _ Out in the West Em Texas town of El A Paso I fell D in love with a Mexican girl.
_ _ Night _ time would find me Em in Rose's Cantina A Music would play and Felina D would whirl.
_ _ _ _ Blacker than night Em were the eyes of Felina A Wicked and evil while D casting a spell _ _ _ _ .
My love was deep for Em this Mexican maid A I was in love D but in vain I could tell.
_ One _ G night a wild little cowboy came in Wild as the West Dm Texas _ _ _ wind.
_ _ _ D _ _ _ .
Dancing and daring a drink he was sharing With wicked Felina the G girl that I loved.
So in anger D I challenged his right For Em the love of this maiden.
A Down with his hand for D the gun that he wore _ _ _ .
My challenge was answered G in less than a heartbeat A A handsome young stranger lay D dead on the floor _ .
Just _ for a moment Em I stood there in A silence Shocked by B the foul evil A deed I D had done.
_ _ _ _ Many thoughts raced Em through my mind as I stood A there I had D but one chance and that was to run.
_ Out _ G through the back door of Rose's I ran Out where the horses Dm were _ D tied _ _ _ _ _ .
_ I _ caught a good one it looked like it could run Up on its back in a way G I did Em.
ride.
Just A as fast D as I could from the West Em Texas town of El Paso A Back to the G D badlands of New Mexico.
_ _ Back _ in El Paso Em my life would be worthless A _ Everything's gone in life G nothing D is left.
_ _ It's been so long Em since I've seen the young maid A My love D is stronger than my fear of death _ _ _ .
G I saddle up and away I did go Riding alone in D the dark.
_ Maybe _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ .
tomorrow a bullet may find me Tonight nothing's worse than this pain G in my heart.
A And at last here D I am on the hill Em Overlooking El Paso A I can see D Rose's cantina below _ _ _ _ .
My love is strong Em and it pushes me onward A Down up the hill F#m to Felina D I go _ .
Off _ to my right Em I see five mounted A cowboys To my left right a dozen D or more.
_ _ _ Shouting and shooting Em I can't let them catch A me I have to make it to D Rose's back door.
_ _ _ _ G Something is dreadfully wrong for I feel A deep burning Dm pain in my soul.
_ _ D Though _ _ _ _ _ I am trying to stay in the saddle I'm getting weary unable G to ride.
A But my love for D Felina is strong and Em I rise where I'm bound Though I am D weary I can't stop to rest.
_ _ I see the white puff Em of smoke from the rifle A I feel the bullet go deep in F#m my _ D chest.
_ From out of Em nowhere Felina has found A me Kissing my cheek and she D kneels by my side _ _ _ .
Bradled by two Em loving arms that I'll die A for One little G kiss and F#m Felina _ G#m goodbye _ .
_ _ _ _ D _ _ _ _ .
